This class is all about how bands (and any musical collaborators) work together.
We will start with talking through what bands "have." That is more than just the PA that they bought together - it is also all their intellectual property - like songs, albums, any recordings, the band name, logos, flyers, and more.
Then we will look at a typical band agreement (I'll give you a copy to use with your own band), and I'll walk you through every step of the agreement so you fully understand what is being asked.
Here is a list of some of the questions we will answer:
· Band Agreements (Contracts)
· Real Property Bands Own
· Intellectual Property Bands Own
· Copyrights and Trademarks
· Operating Agreements
· Right to Use the Band Identity
· Email Lists, Social Media Accounts, and Contacts
· Firing a Band Member
· Adding a Band Member
· Valuation of a Band
· Financing a Band
· Taking Out Loans
· Investors and Bands
· Splitting Profits
· Splitting Losses
· Breaking Up The Band
· And much, much more!
